Abstract:

Using a numerical transformation technique, significant wave data height, peak period, and direction have been computed for the 20-year interval 1956 through 1975 for the U.S. Atlantic coast. The wave data are presented for 166 stations in six data products 1 Geographical variation in the wave climate 2 Twenty-year percent occurrence tables 3 Wave rose diagrams 4 Mean and largest wave-height tables 5 Return period tables, including wave parameter statistics and 6 Over duration tables. A brief description of each product is given and some sections on use of the products, including examples, are provided.
